. then he changed it to paths of prosperity. that's the one he stuck with today. well to paraphrase shakespeare a ryan budget by any other name would still smell unsweet. it would eliminate most of obama-care, it would repeal financial regulation, and it would make major cuts to medicare. sounds great. here he is trying to convince americans that they want this tired 'ol lemon of a plan. >> it's a path to prosperity, a responsible balanced budget. we believe we owe the american people a balanced budget. for the third straight year we've delivered. >> michael: congressman, what you owe the american people is respect. they're smart enough to understand that you introduced the exact same budget during the election and you lost. jay carney today said that the president wants to trim medicare but with a scalpel not an axe. and ryan let slip his real plan for medicare system. >> this to us is something that we're not going to give up on because we're not going to give up on destroying the healthcare system for the american people. >> michael: that was bushan it was so man. was it a freudi
the law having changed there. it puts the federal government in an odd place. states have voted one way. the federal government trying to figure out how to work arounder around that. many have acknowledged that the country is in a serious conversation about marijuana. the president, you remember, went on to--spoke with barbara walters and had this to say. >> do you think that marijuana should be legalized? >> i wouldn't go that far but i think at this point washington and colorado, you've seen the voters speak on this issue. as it is, the federal government has a lot to do when it comes to criminal prosecutions. it does not sense from a prioritization point of view for us to focus on recreational drug users in a state that has already said that under state law that is legal. >> michael: that confusion puts to light by "huffington post" in a poll they have there that say 51% of adults should be exempt from federal drug laws, and 30% say those laws should be enforced in colorado. it becomes for the justice department an issue how if the state says one thing the federal department should d

election after election. third, we must embrace the changing demographics of america, not by diluting our principles, but by reaching out to all americans. if there are those in the republican party who cannot subscribe to the principles, let them go their way. >> we should reach out to everybody, but if you don't agree with what i say get! are you sure you're going to reach out to all? >> american way means we don't take hard-earned money from your family's pocket to provide a better standard of living to those who are no willing to work. cenk: yeah! let's reach out except those bums, i don't want them anywhere near us. bold new ideas by the republicans. let's bring in joe williams, the deputy chief of the boston globe's washington bureau. excellent guest on "the young turks." joe, how are you my friend? >> good to see you again cenk. cenk: great to see you. let me give you more fresh ideas. i'm going to play a clip from marco rubio and let's see all the wonderful new ideas they have here. >> what i sense from a lot of people i've talked to is this fear that somehow america has changed,
. >> everything changes in this country, all the time. so i think it's exactly what this country is supposed to be about. >> michael: the issue has picked up speed since 2008 when california passed prop 8 a ban on gay marriage, the next year two couples sued the state. four years later the case has landed in the supreme court. the justices will decide whether california voters had the constitutional right to bangay marriage. lawyers for both sides made their case today. the lawyer representing gay couples said that prop 8 is unconstitutional because it quote walls off gays and lesbians from marriage. but charles cooper argued that there was already a democratic process going on in the states to determine whether gay people should marry, and the court should stay out of it. he also said allowing same-sex couples to marriage would sever marriage and encourage so-called responsible procreation. >> michael: that issue of whether marriage is just about having kids is part of the discussion. here is justice kagan. >> michael: would that be constitutional? a very good questio
by death of a thousand cuts which will be opinion polls changing day after day after day, and marginalizing, slowly our opposition seeing state after state coming to the conclusion that it is unfair to treat couples differently just because of their sexual orientation, and it's not in the spirit of this country, which we don't get things right right away all the time, but we move in the right direction. >> john: it's great to see progress taking place in our time, and it came because lbgt americans and their allies got organized and forced the leaders to follow them. brian a lot of court watchers are saying that the liberal block and swing justice kennedy seem ready to strike the act down today? how important is it to get one of the conservative votes? >> i think it is possible, and it should be. because we're talking about a law that disrespects the decisions that states have already made about allowing same-sex couples to marry, and that seems like a rather conservative concept. >> john: exactly. >> it would be great to see one of them come alon

: when we come back with the "the young turks" we'll change things completely, totally different conversation. girls on hbo racy, sexy, did it go too far and what does it tell us about modern day relationships with guys and girls and did it go too far in a relationship. interesting conversation. >> get on all fours. >> and what? >> get on all fours. people with sore throats have something new to say. ahh ! mmm ! ahh ! finally, there's cepacol sensations. serious sore throat medicine seriously great taste. plus the medicine lasts long after the lozenge is gone. ahh ! mmm ! cepacol sensations. a closer shave in a single stroke for less irritation, even on sensitive skin. ♪ ♪ gillette mach3 sensitive. gillette. the best a man can get. >> cenk: all right, we're back on "the young turks." we're paneling it up right here. ben mankiewicz joins us legendary movie and tv crittingic since we're talking about a tv show. ana kasparian and of course, right, hermela aregawi. jayar jackson everybody is an alleged. ana, you got this story. what's happening? >> with t
because the president changed u.s. policy when it came to israeli settlement. professionally the u.s. said there can be no peace talks until israel stopped building settlements on the occupied territoried. today the president lectured the israelis saying it's counterproductive and does not help the peace process but he said the talks continue any way. did he not tell the israelis that you must stop building the settlements like he has in the past. >> michael: the speech did not have a lot of expectation. did they lower the bar because they knew no big speech was going to happen on this trip? i was skeptical of why he was even going. >> a couple of things. clearly, there is a political need here in the united states. the polls show that the the president is wobbly among jewish voters, but if he can be seen showing the united states' strength and standing with the best ally in the region, that might help at home. the president frankly gave the israelis what they wanted yesterday when he said look there, is no way the usa is united states is going to allow iran to develop a weapon. the israel
to lose their seats in 2014 and i think we can change the congress over this issue. i mean, what is killing 87 americans a day? not the debt ceiling? it's gun violence, and it's unrestricted access to guns by criminals and the mentally ill, thanks to the capitol managements and the nras of the world who are arming criminals and -- and controlling our hard-fought democracy. we have got to take your democracy back. there are way more of us than there are of those lunatics in the nra, and their benefactors in the gun industry. but we have to hold our congress people accountable. >> michael: it seems, john noot to sort of douse your flames on this, it seems like they are calling. thanks goodness there is bloomberg to counter these people for the first time. isn't the moment going away now? i know we said that about gabby giffords, and i thought that was going to be the moment and it clearly wasn't, now i thought this was a no-brainer. what has to happen? >> i'm afraid something far worse than newtown. as we get further and further away from newtown, we're seeing
sail. the issue isn't the technology. the method does not change the law. cenk: is that a sufficient answer andrew? by the way, does it make it that much of a difference if they can execute u.s. citizens abroad. is it any better to execute you when you go to vacation in london, instead of here in the u.s.? >> that's a key a very important point to make, is that i think the fight that rand paul didn't focus on enough is this had is not just about striking on u.s. soil. i think he may be outside of the united states, but it's not just ok when it's outside of the soil. there's american citizens who deserve a trial especially a 16-year-old, the son that associated with no one that happened to be terrorist. effectively, he was saying no, president obama has never used drone strikes on america which is not answering the question, really. it's frustrating, but at the same time, you know... cenk: right now colonel davis the thing that gets me is when people say all the time in defending president obama's drone strikes and use the republican's defense of bush using similar actions saying what

are undergoing tremendous change and are in the midst of violence and political turmoil. egypt is the cornerstone country in the region for american interest, and kerry is making it clear that the u.s. stands with egypt and changes taking place but this money was appropriated and authorized a year ago is now being released. it was held some time by congress we lated to questions related to egypt's future and politics there. but it is a worthwhile investment. it's the kind of money that if we're going to use money in foreign aid this is where we should be putting it, to make sure we have a relationship with this new government that does meet the needs of the country. >> john: and anybody who cares about egypt's long term strength and stability should care very deeply about the strength of our relationship with egypt. >> we really have a relationship with the cornerstone country for israel ensuring that israel's southern board is secure. they signed a peace treaty more than three decades ago. part of that was to make sure that the u.s. and egypt were tight, and the security relationship we have wit
dropped substantially as well. meanwhile, house republicans don't seem too keen on changing that trend. the house voted to fund the government through the end of the fiscal year, which ends september 30th, but left the sequester in place. most republicans voted yes. most democrats no. the bill a give the pentagon flexibility in deciding where to cut but did not touch the $85 billion the sequester will cut from the economy, a cut that could cost three-quarters of a million jobs this year, which would boost both the unemployment rate and income inequality. maybe that's exactly what some members of congress really want. for more let's go to economist and roosevelt institute senior fellow jeff madrick welcome back to the show. >> it's good to see. >> john: it's great to see you although under disconcerting circumstances. fdr's theme song was "happy days are here again." i would like to say with the record set for the dui we would like to say that happy day for most americans but that the knows the case. >> that's not the case yet. it seems more repulsive that this is going on. stocks risi

and that will have no impact on whether states that don't recognize gay marriages have to change their law. they will not have to change their law -- >> cenk: but the federal government would? >> the federal government would in terms of its recognition, yes. >> cenk: on the federalism argument is it the same as the equal protection argument? >> if the court finds that it has jurisdiction and so it gets to the merits either the federalism merits or the equal protection merits, then yes that would be a ruling that the law -- assuming that there are five justices who agree that the law is unconstitutional for one reason or another. the interesting question would be whether there are five justices who could agree on why the law is underconstitutional. it might be if justice kennedy is only willing to -- to write an opinion that deals with federalism, you might have four justices saying it is unconstitutional because of equal protection one justice saying it is unconstitutional because of federalism so it would be unconstitutional, but it would leave in limbo some of
mechanically, but what can the church do with their choice that would change the way they're perceived around the world now? >> well, i have two suggestions. one is to elect the dalai lama the new pope. that would clean things up overnight. it would change all the power struggles, and he wouldn't even have to show up very much, maybe three or four times a year give a talk from the balcony and then the whole thing can become the museum that it is. sell extra paintings and give money to the poor. who is looking to the van vatican today for spiritual or moral leadership? no one. that's my first choice. the second choice would be the sister from eerie pennsylvania, who is in the spirit who was declared a saint this year. overnight they would get a new impression because they would prove that it's not just a boy's club after all. they would recognize the intelligence spirituality of a woman. sister joan chinister. that's the only two ways that they could redo their image in a manner that really matters. i think dalai lama and sister joan represent authentic spiritual and moral values. >> michael:
you change and gave you none of it. now, when we come back, another injustice, sexual assault cases in the military. well, we got a conviction. didn't matter, because the general let the guy go anyway. >> i question now whether that unit if that man returns to, whether there's any chance a woman sexually assaulted in that unit would ever say a word. >> i've actually never seen he that happen before that a convening authority would everturn a case. coming on to me all the time now. (vo) she gets the comedians laughing and the thinkers thinking. >>ok, so there's wiggle room in the ten commandments, that's what you're saying. you would rather deal with ahmadinejad than me. >>absolutely. >> and so would mitt romney.

chaos for 50 years now so no change there. right now the opposition, which has been fractured and splintered since 19 8 98 is trying to regroup and bring in chavez's hand-picked successor. right now in venezuela the status is as natural, but everyone is trying to clamor for power at the moment. >> michael: you think this chavezism or the chavezimo, as they say will continue on even though he has been ill. >> well, he has not been leader, and they've continued on the same path. basically a more boring version of hugo chavez, no charisma but same language. he's accusing the obama administration trying to prevent a coup in caracas. by the way we told you earlier today that the empire up north is attempting a coup so it's the exact same tactic as 1998. >> michael: let's talk about what it will do with his relations with the united states. are they likely to change? >> not really. again, all we have to do is look at earlier today when he was throwing down the gauntlet saying medora was throwing down the gauntlet and saying the empire and they ridiculed obama and it basically change
like this that we really see change happen.

there are in this country? somewhere between 32% and 35% of the electorate. that has not changed for all practical purposes. people now identify themselves as independents because of the iraq war even though they vote for republicans every time, for bush twice voted against obama because of things like this, they still identify them. you're going to find go across the board women's rights, you know choice legislation obamacare, all these things, your number's going to be about 32% to 36% that's the number. that is exactly the number of people who want to repeal obamacare. i guarantee that movement, that group of people has not changed in this time. it's not a new group of people who have suddenly come across. there's an interesting part of it though, and this is what i would like to address to you. 21% want to change obamacare. now the prevailing wisdom in the media, and this is certainly part of the strategy, is that change means they don't like it because they don't like what it does that's new. i think that change number has a wedge of independents who lean republican who want to change it to limit what

the wrong place to expect a change in the republican party. remember the base is still mostly whiter, mostly older and mostly very conservative. neither people who have no real interests in adopting the kind of views necessary to move to the middle and maybe to win more votes. right now i think the republican reform project ought to be concentrated on elites in politicians. if you take a step back and look at what the democrats said after the 1988 election, in 1988 michael do you dukakis loses big time to bush, and they led the charge to moderate the democratic party and bring it back to center and win elections. right now for the g.o.p. they have to take the same approach. more on that, did the base do itself any favors? >> i don't think they did itself any flavors. favors at all. with the christie exclusion mcdonnell exclusion is puzzling. christie is not a liberal. they hold similar views on marriage, labor, they're the same politicians that republicans should want. men who can win in blue or purple states using a moderate techno cratic mention and has the personality to hold voters. you
